And now for MY favorite part - the SOTM template!! Sue has created Cup of Cocoa template for us to play with again this month!! Download your copy of the FREE template HERE. And take a look at my Cup of Cocoa creation:

I made this fun little hybrid gifty using a Kraft CS base and some printed digi papers from the Freezin' Season kit by Melissa Bennett (Sweet Shoppe) . I layered both of the label images from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set, the solid image stamped in So Saffron ink and the outline image stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa. The sentiment, "wishing you a cup full of cheer", was also stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa. I then cut out the label and popped it up on dimensionals on the front of my little cocoa mug. I added a little tag to the handle with the stamped "for the love of chocolate". Here's a closer look at that stamped label and tag:

Once it was finished I filled the cup with a little cellophane bag of hot cocoa mix tied with some So Saffron ribbon and added a few See's peppermint candies (which are AWESOME melted and stirred into a steaming cup of cocoa - my favorite treat when we go backpacking in Haleakala Crater!)

Head on over to the other CSS DT blogs to see what they've done with the SOTM Cup of Cocoa set and template!!
